What did you see on the road today?

Recommended Posts

Last week I saw a guy driving a newer black COPO Camaro in traffic. Very nice and very loud. Wish I had taken a picture. 

Then a block later a new Corvette with a chrome wrap.

was at Costco and there was a neat, almost new looking, very rare "Mercury Bobcat"  sitting right in the front by the doors!  For some reason I can't get the pics to upload! Just keeps kicking it out saying there is a problem with the file????

Today I saw a clean late '70s Dodge Aspen here in Finland. It had winter tires on so it's probably used as a daily driver. B)  Those are not so rare cars around here, but seeing one in that nice condition is pretty rare. Then a bit later I saw an orange Plymouth Van that has a Mopar Big Block mill. Here's a picture of the same car, taken a few weeks ago at a local garage party.

As I was cruising in my ride today to fill up the tank with more high octane I saw a 30's (Sedan) fender less street rod going in the other direction. I don't remember if I had seen it at any of the shows or cruise nights this past summer or not?

Got to play with this last week.

2019 Ford Ranger Lariat.

This one is  Ford Canada Fleet demo unit.

It's a nice truck, but it already feels kind of dated, even though you can't buy them here yet.

Curious, Dan, how does it feel dated? Looks very modern to me. There again I still have a flip phone......^_^

The truck has already been out in the rest of the world for a number of years now. Suspension tech is already 5 years old. Interior switches and infotainment is lifted from the F150, which is now 4 years old. The powertrain was adapted to fit an existing chassis, and just didn't feel great to me. 

I will say this, the size is perfect. Lots of room for people and stuff, yet it's not a huge truck. I'm 6'6" and fit very comfortably. And the back seat is surprisingly good.

This morning I stopped at a gas station to get a cup of coffee while driving to school with my truck. One car stood out from the rest at the parking lot, and it was this '66 Chevy Caprice. It was probably just arrived from USA as it had Texas plates on it.

The paint shows the signs of a desert "Sun Burn". The good news is that it should be relatively rust free, providing it didn't spend much time around the Gulf.

Saw these when in Winslow Arizona in September. And, yes, I stood on the corner

Saw that Crosley and another one when I was in Winslow in 2015...on the street by the old hotel by the rail road tracks.   And the red flatbed Ford (actually a stake bed).

Oregon plates-probably suffering from sunstroke.
